For the last half year or so I've been adding customizations and
enhancements to the OPT 0.9.4.8 beta source code. This customized
version has stuff like:
* customizable list filters
* search interfaces
* mailing list archiving
* dynamic charting and graphing
* per-project security controls and settings (including status and
priority fields), milestone support too
* calendars (absences, events, deadlines)
* full support for timesheets.
For the full list of changes and enhancements see my website.
I'd really like to thank CSO Lanifex for the fantastic product that
allowed me to concentrate on enhancements because all the hard parts of
the app had already been written. I'd looked everywhere for a project
management tool and OPT was better than anything out there. Thanks
Anyhow, I've been in contact with Bogdan about the future of OPT. CSO
Lanifex is currently working on a complete rewrite of OPT to be known as
OPT 2.0. Since this will take a while, I am considering writing an
upgrade path from 0.9.4.8beta to my customized version to allow the OPT
community to benefit from new features while OPT 2.0 is being
developed. However, since this would require a fair amount of work, I
need to know that there is interest in the community for my version
before I devote the required time.
That's where you come in. If you're currently using OPT, please feel
free to give my demo site a test drive at:
Let me know what you think. If I get enough positive feedback that
there is a demand for the enhancements that my version provides, I'll
take the time to provide an upgrade path for existing users.
On the other hand, if most people are happy with OPT as it is and don't
want the new features, then I won't bother with an upgrade path. In
this case, I'll post a tarball of my version on my website. Then anyone
using it will do so with the understanding that it is a side branch on
the OPT tree that likely won't be followed up on and won't see any
"official" project support.
I await your feedback. Feel free to contact me with questions or
concerns you may have.
Very nice enhancement of OPT! I would be very interested in taking a look at installing this for a client I am currently working with. This would be a fresh install, so no need for upgrade path.
Oh, oh! Realy nice!
I do not yet understand your permission system, but the enhancements I saw look pretty nice!
And sure, I am interested!

at first glance seems reasonably similar to the old version of opt.
